Sounds like the voices and/or hallucinations were making her laugh.Good thread Shamis. I knew a friend of the family who had schizophrenia. She was prone to smiling and laughing when nothing funny had been said by anyone. It was a bit disturbing to watch. She was also accident prone.
Her family knew little about the condition and yelled at her a lot. As if that was gonna help. There's a serious lack of awareness about mental disorders among these qaxootis. Autism and schizophrenia can drag on for years without medical intervention, by which time damage has been done.
This video is a good primer on the subject. Came as a surprise to me some of the things involved in a psychotic episode.
I've only heard good things about this film. I really ought to watch it.I just watched a movie somewhat about this. Its called a "A beautiful mind" its about some mathematician called John Nash. I don't wanna spoil it but Schizophrenia had a big part to do with it. I recommend it, it was a good watch
Oh no! That sounds so scary! What happened next?I rented a room in calgary a few years ago and one of the roommates was schizophrenic. Craziest 3 months of my life. I was too scared to even leave my room. He'd laugh randomly and kept telling ppl strippers were after him. One day the brother just snapped and tried to assassinate me. Voices in his head told him I was conspiring against him and had to be taken out. He destroyed the bedroom door with a bench press bar. Said my shahada and was ready to go.
Good thing you had a phone nearby. A friend of mine wears dental implants because a man with schizophrenia attacked him with a chair in a restaurant. He's in a lock down hospital for 5 years because of that. I feel sorry for schizophrenics, toughest illness to battle and they die younger than other people too.Called the landlord, he got to the house on time and they got into it. Cops came and took him away. But honestly, I had cisors in my hands and was ready to end him.
